Discover the beauty, symmetry and logic of mathematics and its laws
If you have an inquisitive mind and like to find out how things work or to solve puzzles, then you may have “the right stuff” to become a mathematician. The study of mathematics will make you a smarter, more logical person, it will add unexpected beauty and the joy of discovery to your life, and it will open the door to further study of advanced subjects.
Mathematics is the language used to describe the very fabric of life, the laws of Nature, and is a powerful tool to help you understand economics, probability, statistics and business. It helps you make better decisions too and understand risk.
AUBG Mathematics graduates have gone on to pursue advanced research, to win prizes and to further their studies at prestigious institutes. Our faculty members are diverse and fascinated by the natural world and its laws. They challenge and inspire you to discover both the fundamental branches of modern and classical theory, and their application in advanced topics.
The Mathematics major is based on a variety of courses in pure and applied mathematics. Students who complete the major will acquire a broad background in the fundamental branches of classical and modern analysis, algebra and discrete structures, differential equations and applications, probability theory, and both theoretical and applied statistics. The major will provide an invaluable opportunity for students interested in developing significant mathematical skills through a selection of advanced courses that will introduce them to some modern lines of contemporary mathematics and its applications to other sciences. The major prepares students for professional careers or advanced academic work not only in mathematics but also in many mathematics-intensive areas, including quantitative finance, actuary science, economics, computer science, natural sciences and many more.
Some of our graduates have gone on to successfully complete postgraduate degree programs in prestigious universities in the United States, including Cornell University, Duke University, the Johns Hopkins University, Northwestern University, the University of Maryland, the University of Pittsburgh and Vanderbilt University. Some have participated in prestigious international summer schools, research conferences, and workshops such as the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehevot, Israel, the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics in Trieste, Italy.
AUBG offered me the majors and courses that are essential for someone pursuing a graduate education and career in quantitative finance. What I found most useful is that I was able to switch majors half way through without losing an extra year.
